The Australian Investment Council is really pleased to have 10 senior private capital leaders committed to our new industry-wide Champions of Change program:

 Andrew Major
   Anne-Marie Birkill

These senior leaders are helping the industry accelerate its efforts around boosting diversity and inclusion here in Australia, leveraging their individual and collective leadership positions to influence change. They are collaborating with our Diversity and Inclusion Committee to share their ideas and insights into new strategies and initiatives that can build on the significant change that is already underway across the sector. We are really excited about the collaboration. 

To date, the Champions have pledged to call out meetings and panels with no women and commit to only joining panels that are not all-male. They are acting as champions of action and advocacy to increase the participation and opportunities for women in our industry.

Remember that the Australian Investment Council has a range of case studies, tools and other resources to help you bring about change within your own firm on our website aic.co. You can also access our latest toolkit – AIC’s Gender Diversity & Inclusion Checklist – to assess your firm’s current gender diversity scorecard. The checklist includes links to other helpful resources which could propel your firm to be a top-quartile performer in gender diversity in Australia.
